My BFF gave me these flowers...
such pretty bouquet and have cheered me no end these past few days.
when one's spirits are low and flagging
looking at a vase of fresh flowers feels like a breath of fresh air
looking back through my photos there are hundreds of flower images
I'm a rose lover and a gardener who loves to bring in some of what I grow in the garden
I like to be surrounded by flowers
their shape, scent and beauty make me happy...
I cannot imagine a life without flowers.
with that thought in mind
here are some pictures of the many arrangements I have made
if you don't like flowers click away now!
this bouquet was sent to me when I had pneumonia
summer sweet peas from our humble bungalow garden
Jacob's Coat roses from our back garden
more sweet peas
I adore bouquets that have white blooms with some lime green foliage
simple wood hyacinths
(and a macaron!)
I took flowers on every trip we took aboard our Classic Chris Craft Constellation
if I left my garden behind for time afloat I always snatched a few blooms just before we left the bungalow
such lovely roses...

which is one of our favourite spots to enjoy a quiet respite.

All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr was a Christmas gift and I loved the book...
the story takes place in Paris and France and a young blind girl features prominently in the story
which is set during war time.
I finished the book a few days ago but it has stayed with me...
So much so that I am not able to start reading a new one just yet.
I wonder if author's have any idea how much their works affect their readers?
Thank you for all your comments on my packing list.
I have made note of your suggestions and will be making some changes.
BTW I have ordered some long thermal wear from Lands' End!
Have a wonderful weekend!
